Persecution Details of Falun Gong Practitioners in Qingdao City
(Clearwisdom.net) Since 1999, the Huangdao Office in Qingdao City has persecuted practitioners via detentions, home searches, confiscation of property, and threats.
The perpetrators include Xue Ruijun, Yu Yanjin, Li Weilu (deceased) and Gu Qingni. Dozens of practitioners have been arrested and sent to labor camps.
The list of arrested practitioners include: in Xuge Village of Huangdao area, Sun Guangli, Shao Guixin and her husband, Xu Zhongliang, Liu Yong and his wife, Meng Zhaoxiu, Li Guifen; in Shiziluyuan Village, Li Fumei, Liu Limei; in Wopeng Village, Wan Xiaoyan. These arrests have brought great loss and injury to these Falun Gong practitioners' families. Below is an account of the persecution of one practitioner.
Practitioner Ms. Li Fumei, 44, residing in Shiziluyuan Village, Huangdao area, started practicing Falun Gong in 1999. On November 23, 1999 she went to Beijing to appeal and was detained for 53 days. During that period, she was forced to watch videos slandering Falun Dafa every day until midnight. Finally, they extorted 8000 yuan from her before she could be released.
On April 27, 2000, police searched her house and seized all of her Dafa books and pictures of Falun and Teacher. Police officers held her down on a bed, immobilized her head, arms and legs, bound her legs with two straps, one on her calves and the other on her thighs, and bound her arms behind her back. Since they exerted too much force, she passed out from lack of air. The perpetrators pinched her to wake her up, then carried her and her books to the police car. The retired women's director in the village, Li Yongxiu, newly-appointed director Guan Shuqin, and bare-foot doctor Li witnessed the whole process. Five policemen were involved in the action, and the leaders were Wang Tao and Hu Jianfeng.
In August 2000, simply for posting Falun Gong fliers, Li Fumei was again detained in Big Mountain Detention Center in Qingdao. Some practitioners are sent on from there to labor camps. Since then, Li Fumei has frequently been tracked, watched, threatened and harassed.
On April 12, 2002, wrongdoers, including Yu Yanjin, deceived Li Fumei into leaving work and getting into their car, and then took her to the "Wang Village Law Training Center," which is in fact a brainwashing center. At the center, the persecutors charge everyone over 100 yuan for room and board. They dispatched female director Li Yongxiu to the center. The brainwashing center deprives people of sleep, forcing them to stand for long periods of time. The practitioners' legs, feet and abdomens were all swollen and it was painful for them to stand up after having stood for such long periods.
Li Fumei was injected with an unknown drug which made her feel weak and numb, and her arms turned black. She went into shock after half an hour. At the time, the perpetrators were eating in a restaurant. They carried comatose Li Fumei from the restaurant to the car. Li Yongxiu and the restaurant staff all witnessed this.
After she became clear-minded again, Li Fumei wrote a solemn declaration on July 30 stating that all she had written and said under the horror and intense pressure of the persecution was invalid. She also wrote an article titled "Disclosing the evil, clarifying the truth and assisting Teacher," declaring that she wants to continue cultivating Falun Dafa, and there is nothing wrong in believing in Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance.
On August 31, 2002, Li Fumei was taken to Big Mountain Detention Center in Qingdao. When the police went to her house to take her away, Li Fumei's daughter was home. She refused to open the door. When Li Fumei returned home, she saw many policemen prying at the door and lock. They arrested her and took her to the detention center for one month. Afterwards, she was sentenced to three years of forced labor and transferred to the Wangcun Women's Forced Labor Camp in Zibo City. (security director Li Baokun could attest to the fact).
Li Fumeis body was extremely weak during detention. She had developed hypertension and heart disease and the labor camp refused to accept her. Huangdao Office spent 1000 yuan to bribe the labor camp to accept her. The person in charge is Xue Ruijun. Later, the state of her illness became even more serious and she was released ahead of schedule.
Over the past few years, the Huangdao government has used harassment and threats, declaring widely that they want to catch practitioners and detain them, or send them to the brainwashing center in Qingdao.
Recently, Falun Gong practitioners have been facing a new cycle of persecution. Director Luo of Huangdao Office ordered and instigated the village officer to send practitioners to the Qingdao brainwashing center. The village office will pay the fees for the sessions and send a chaperon along. Village secretary Tian Qinfu, security director Li Baokun and Chen Wenhua can attest to this.
